In a way, you should thank that GPU for saving you from using that vertical mount. Those are terrible for thermals, pushing the heatsink up against the glass side panel, and thus hurt performance as you start dropping to lower boost bins, all for ... letting you look at some spinning fans instead of your game? I understand appreciating hardware in and of itself, but doing so to the degree that you're needlessly harming performance is just a bad idea. It's no wonder that your CPU temps increased though, given that it's a 250W+ GPU. According to your specs here you had a 1030 before that? So you're effectively dumping 200W more heat into your case - that will make anything warmer, and no GPU cooler (other than one that exhausts its heat directly outside of the case) would change that.I went to Mirco-Center on Monday and pick up a refurbished RTX 2080 TI for $863 with taxes ($799.99) turns out it was EVGA FTW 3 one too!
I like the card but I don't like these 3 fan heat sinks on them. My case will not fir it mounted vertically as it's a three-slot card and my case only fits two-slot cards vertically (Corsair 4000D airflow). My cpu temps have went up from this card.
